Enlarging the Usefulness of Statistics 




by 

HERBERT MARSHALL 

Dominion Statistician 



'The foundations of industrial progress appear 

more and more to be built of statistical materials." 



'T'HIS reference to the increasingly important 
•*- role of statistics in the modern economy 
was made in an article in the London Economist 
about a year ago. It reflects the fact that as in 
total war or large-scale international co- 
operation, the affairs of individual nations, due 
to the complexity of modern life, require 
comprehensive statistics of high quality as one 
of the basic materials for interpretation and 
policy-making. In World War I, Marshal Foch 
is reported to have said that "Statistics won 
the War". The sweeping character of such 
recognition, while flattering to the statistical 
fraternity, may be reduced to the claim that in 
modern wars statistics have been a most 
essential part of the total effort. 

The Stimulus of the War 

The highly complex and pressing economic 
problems created by total war accelerated 
development in the quantity and quality of 
statistical information. New data and improved 
statistical devices were produced for measuring 
the economic resources of the country and 
gauging what policies would best promote 
the maximum war effort from these resources. 
As the economic and social problems of the 
war passed into those of the post-war, there 
was some change in their nature, but their 
intensity and complexity remained and the 
need for the best possible statistics diminished 
not at all. 

The war also stimulated a growing public 
interest in statistics. This was natural. In 
the first place, developments such as the 
threat of inflation gave greatly increased 
importance to the Cost-of-Living Index and 
other measurements of prices that lent them- 
selves to the determination of wage increases 



or to provide an escalator clause in long-term 
contracts, etc. Secondly, more and more 
people came to realize that they had a strong 
personal interest in the economic health of the 
country, in the problems facing it, and in the 
policies adopted to meet those problems. They 
also recognized that statistics are the only 
means by which the national economic health 
can accurately be gauged, the magnitude of the 
problems measured, and the wisdom of the 
policies judged. The resulting demands for 
further enlightenment concerning statistical 
facts must be encouraged ; and anything which 
can be done to present statistical data in a 
clear, interesting and attractive manner will 
be an important step in that direction. 

Present Bureau Objectives 

A few years ago the Dominion Bureau of 
Statistics, which was created in 1918, practically 
completed the first stage in its development. 
This formative period in the Bureau's history 
was characterized by the definition, in bold 
outline, of the field of future operations and all 
important aspects of the Canadian social and 
economic structure were then surveyed and 
covered. But, in a period of large-scale plan- 
ning and expansion into new fields while face 
to face with difficulties of preparatory organ- 
ization, results had often to be achieved at some 
sacrifice in comprehensiveness. 

In the present stage of development the 
Bureau is placing emphasis on the refinement 
of all its statistical series and on increasing 
their general usefulness by closing the time 
lag that now frequently exists, and so making 
available more current and up-to-date data. 
This involves not only an effort to raise the 
quality of all its statistical fields to the level of 



the existing best but also the adoption of new 
and improved techniques which have been 
developed in recent years. Among the first 
fruits of the Bureau's present emphasis on 
improvement are the reorganized statistics of 
the National Accounts and National Income. 

This emphasis on refinement is in line with 
the efforts of international organizations such 
as the United Nations Statistical Commission, 
the Specialized Agencies of the United Nations, 
and numerous national and international 
Statistical Institutes, not only to increase 
statistical coverage among the nations but to 
promote the use of the highest statistical 
standards. On the national and the interna- 
tional levels the complexity of economic and 
social problems in modern times requires not 
only a wide coverage in statistical data but the 
processing of that data into more refined 
statistical tools for the use of all those con- 
cerned with the solution of business, social and 
political problems. 

A second objective of the Bureau's present 
program is the improvement of its internal 
operating economy. The statistical needs of 
governments, business and the general public 
have increased greatly since the Bureau was 
created, and in consequence the staff of the 
Bureau has grown. To keep the growth in 
numbers and costs to an essential minimum, 
the Administration staff has been strengthened 
to carry out - - to use a popular term a 
"streamlining" of the Bureau. Advantage has 
to be taken of every labour-saving device or 
cost-reducing method to promote maximum 
efficiency in operating procedures. 

An important advance has been the creation 
of the Bureau's Sampling Organization. By 
means of scientific methods this unit collects 
information from a small sample of people or 
firms adequate for the purpose in hand. Thus 
satisfactory results are obtained more quickly, 
the costs of complete enumeration are avoided, 
and the questionnaire burden on the public is 
diminished. 

A third objective is the better utilization of 
data which already exist in the Bureau. There 
is a wealth of material in the various Divisions 
which only requires further processing to be of 
great value. This type of work involves careful 
analysis and synthesis of the statistics collected 



in various fields and can only be done by highly 
trained staff. Such work is now being under- 
taken by certain research units in the Bureau. 
The recently published series on Labour Income 
is an example of the better use of existing 
statistical data. 

The Canadian Statistical Review 

The keystone of this same objective is the 
immediate publication of existing up-to-date 
statistics in a more usable form by presenting 
them as clearly, interestingly and attractively 
as possible. All the advantages of improved 
methodology and refinement mentioned pre- 
viously would lose their point if this were over- 
looked. The development of a suitable publicity 
vehicle (preferably on a monthly basis) that is 
quite up-to-date and of the greatest possible 
use to all groups in the country is the logical 
end product of such an improvement program. 
In an effort to meet this need the Monthly 
Review of Business Statistics, which in the past 
has enjoyed a wide circulation and served the 
needs of its day very satisfactorily, has been 
completely recast and appears with this issue 
under a new title, the Canadian Statistical 
Review. 

The name was selected as being expressive of 
the present character of the publication. When 
the Monthly Review of Business Statistics was 
first published in 1926 it was confined more to 
business statistics than it now is, and was in 
fact paralleled by another publication called 
the Monthly Bulletin of Agricultural Statistics. 
As time passed, however, the Monthly Bulletin 
of Agricultural Statistics became a quarterly 
publication and the Monthly Review- of Busi- 
ness Statistics was expanded to include more 
and more tables and to cover wider and wider 
fields, until it became far more than a review of 
business statistics. It became in fact a review of 
Canadian statistics. 

With the change in name considerable 
changes have been made in the format. The 
size of the page now conforms to that of the 
generality of Bureau publications and indeed to 
that of most publications of a similar character 
issued by other nations. The larger page 
permits the statistics to be better spaced and 
to be printed in more readable type. It allows, 
too, for the inclusion of longer tables, and 
advantage has been taken of this to show 



ii 



monthly figures for the past twenty-four 
months and monthly averages for the imme- 
diate past ten years and for two or three 
important years before that, wherever this 
material is available. This gives a better 
historical perspective to the current figures. 

Statistics contained in the new Review are to 
a large extent the same as in the old, but the 
tables have been considerably re-arranged to 
give unity to each section. The table of contents 
shows the grouping according to the main 
sectors of the Canadian economy. There is an 
introductory group of tables which contains a 
selection of significant economic statistics for 
Canada, the United States and the United 
Kingdom. Some comparison is thus provided 
between developments in Canada and those in 
the two countries which have the greatest 
influence on our economy. 

Explanatory Articles 

In the Review the proportion of explanatory 
text will be somewhat increased. The leading 
article discussing economic conditions in the 
current month, which has regularly appeared 
in the Monthly Revieiv of Business Statistics, 
will be continued. It will review the "high- 
lights" as shown in the recent statistics, giving 
some background and reference to develop- 
ments in other countries where this is relevant. 
The article will be augmented by a number of 
graphic charts. 

A new feature will be an article which each 
month will discuss one particular series or 
field of statistics. It will describe in non-tech- 
nical language and non-technical concepts how 
these statistics are compiled and what are their 
limitations and their usefulness. In other 
words, it will aim to give the layman, month by 
month, a good description of the statistics 



contained in the Review so that he may know 
how best to use and apply them. The first of 
these articles will appear in the next issue of 
the Review, and will discuss the Cost-of- 
Living Index. 

In order still further to reduce the time lag 
between the preparation of the statistics and 
their publication, which is inevitable in a 
monthly review, it is planned to issue a Weekly 
Supplement which will carry the latest monthly 
figures as soon as they are available. This 
Supplement will be sent automatically to all 
subscribers to the Canadian Statistical Review. 

The Bureau Meets laried Needs 

As the principal current statistical publi- 
cation of the Bureau, the Canadian Statistical 
Review is designed to cover as widely as possible 
the general needs of statistical users. It cannot, 
in many cases, cater to the more detailed 
requirements of those closely interested in a 
particular industry or economic activity. Such 
information, however, can be obtained from the 
other more specialized publications of the 
Bureau, of which there are 434 regularly issued. 

For the benefit of those interested in a sub- 
stantial number of these publications, a special 
"All Publications" blanket subscription has 
been arranged. In this connection, several 
subscribers to the "All Publications" list have 
asked for advice on the best method by which to 
file these documents. A filing system and a 
card index of the subjects covered in all the 
publications is being prepared. 

In conclusion, it may be emphasized that, as 
one of the principal "service agencies" of the 
Government, one of the Bureau's principal 
functions is to help all those interested in 
statistics. Communications or visits to this end 
are always welcome.

1944- 1945 1946 1947 



A possible reversal of the upward trend in 
prices, a rise in interest rates, a forecast con- 
tinuation of the boom in investment expendi- 
tures, and a continued high level of activity 
though with some rise in unemployment, 
have featured the early part of 1948. At the 
moment of writing attention is strongly 
focussed on the sharp declines in grain and 
other commodity prices which have featured 
major United States and Canadian markets. 
These declines are in sharp contrast to the 
general pattern of price rise of the last few 
months. 

At the start of the year the announcement 
of higher prices on the British contracts for the 
purchase of bacon, beef, eggs, and cheese was 
followed by sharp rises in meat prices to the 
Canadian consumers. At about the same time 
higher prices for fuel oil and gasoline were 
announced by a number of major oil com- 
panies. These recent advances can be expected 
to cause some further rise in the Cost-of- 
Living Index, which by January 1, 1948, had 
already reached 148.3, about 17 per cent higher 
than its level a year earlier. Rising prices were 
also evident at the wholesale level and the 
Index of Industrial Materials advanced almost 
2 per cent during January. 

Investment and Production Trends 

A rise in the cost of long-term investment 
funds, the first in a number of years, was 
another important development during the 
month. This rise came after a year during 
which capital expenditures reached a record 
level with a further increase forecast for 1948. 
The Minister of Trade and Commerce an- 
nounced that Canadian business, government 
and individuals plan to spend about $2.7 billion 
on capital in 1948, an increase of about 17 per 
cent over 1947. Taking into consideration the 
higher prices now prevailing this would indicate 
that the real volume of investment expendi- 
tures will continue at about the same level. 

Although this indicates a further over-all 
rise in construction expenditures, awards of 
contracts have fallen off somewhat since the 
import restrictions were announced in Novem- 



IV 






in January 



ber; new awards in January were down over 
20 per cent in comparison with January 1947. 
This decline has centred in contracts for 
business, industrial and engineering construc- 
tion, whereas residential awards have remained 
higher than a year ago. Some delay in business 
decisions pending a clarification of the extent 
of restrictions on capital imports may have 
contributed to this decline. 

Some indication of production trends during 
January is provided by data on freight carload- 
ings. Total loadings for the month were 
about 4.5 per cent higher than for the same 
period in 1947, with loadings of mine, forest 
and livestock products showing the largest 
gain. That import restrictions have reduced 
the flow of goods from United States is indi- 
cated by the decline in the number of cars 
received from connections. These were down 
about 7 per cent over January a year ago. This 
decline is confirmed by an announcement by 
the Minister of Finance that the Foreign 
Exchange Control Board's holdings of gold and 
United States dollars had increased by about 
$12 million during January. The voluntary 
reduction of petroleum imports, in effect since 
the beginning of the year, would contribute to 
this improvement. 

Two less favourable developments were also 
present. Unusually cold weather, resulting in a 
shortage of gas for industrial use has caused 
an interruption in production and temporary 
unemployment for certain areas of Western 
Ontario. Some rise in unemployment is also 
indicated by statistics on the number of 
persons signing the live unemployment insur- 
ance register. At the end of December the 
number on the register was about 12 per cent 
higher than at December 31, 1946, whereas in 
previous months there had been fewer on the 
register than at the same time a year earlier. 

Gross National Product Reaches a 
Record High 

Preliminary estimates of Canada's gross 
national product, a summary measure of the 
economy's total output, place it at about 
13 billion dollars for 1947. This is about 12 per

cent higher than the revised estimate for 1946 
and in dollar terms is a record high. A sub- 
stantial part of this rise was due to higher 
prices; the Cost-of -Living Index averaged about 
9.6 per cent higher for the year. Nevertheless 
there was some rise in the volume of goods and 
services produced a fact which is supported by 
data on both employment and production. 

Total civilian employment for the year 
averaged about 3 to 3.5 per cent higher than in 

1946 with almost all of the increase being shown 
in the non-agricultural sector. Both the 
natural increase in population and a substan- 
tial volume of immigration added to the labour 
force during the year. Total immigration for 

1947 is estimated at about 75,000, or a little 
larger than a year ago, but because the 1946 
total included a large number of servicemen's 
wives and their children, the current year's 
inflow probably added more to the labour 
force. Less interruption from industrial 
disputes also contributed to an increased 
production during 1947. Time lost in labour 
disputes has been estimated at about 2.4 
million man days, only a little more than half 
of the loss in 1946. 

This larger and more steadily employed 
labour force was reflected on the production 
side in a rise of about 10 per cent in the index 
of industrial production. All three main 
components of the index, mining, manu- 
facturing and electric power showed average 
gains ranging from about 8.5 for mining to 
10.5 for manufacturing (based on 11 months of 
1947). That the rise in overall output was not 
larger is due to a decline in production in 
certain fields, notably in agriculture but also 
in the fishing industry. 

Replacement of Public by Private 
Expenditure Continues 

Analysis of the components of Canada's 
gross national expenditure indicates that the 
shift from government to private forms of 
expenditure, evident in 1946, was continued 
during 1947. Government purchases of goods 
and services declined a further 18 per cent 
and, in comparison with the size of the gross 
national product, were smaller than in 1938 
and 1939. Thus in 1947 government expendi- 
tures on goods and services — a total which 



excludes all transfer expenditures such as 
veterans and family allowance payments — 
amounted to less than 12 per cent of the gross 
national product, whereas in the years 1938 and 
1939 the corresponding totals amounted to 14 
and 13.6 per cent respectively. 

This decline in government expenditures 
was more than made up by the increase in 
foreign purchases, in consumer expenditures 
and in the capital expenditures of business 
firms and individuals. The rise in this latter 
group was especially large. Total gross home 
investment, which includes expenditures for 
new machinery, for residential and other 
construction and for additions to inventories, 
increased by about 57 per cent during 1947. 
Expenditures for plant, equipment and housing 
amounted to over 2 billion dollars, a larger 
total than in any previous year, and accounted 
for over 15 per cent of the total gross national 
expenditure. This compares with an average 
for the years from 1938 to 1941 of about 11 per 
cent. 

Personal expenditures on consumer goods 
and services continued to increase and in 1947 
were estimated at about $8.7 billion, an 
advance of over 13 per cent for the year. In 
this group, higher prices accounted for a good 
part of the rise, so that the increase in the 
volume of goods purchased was much less 
than this. The other major expenditure 
field, exports of goods and services, increased by 
a similar amount, about 12 per cent. 

All of the increased demands for goods 
reflected by this rising volume of expenditure 
could not be met out of domestic production 
alone. Part of the gap between over-all demands 
and available domestic supplies was met by a 
sharp rise in imports, largely from United 
States. Total imports of goods and services 
increased by about 25 per cent during 1947 and 
amounted to over 27 per cent of Canada's gross 
national product. This is somewhat larger 
than imports' average share in the total 
product of about 24 per cent for the years from 
1938 to 1941. 

Greater Income from Salaries and 
Wages 

Examination of the income side of the 
National Accounts reveals, in main outline, 



vi 



the increases in income to which this larger 
volume of expenditures gave rise. Salaries, 
wages, and supplementary labour income 
showed a marked gain during 1947 and the 
total for the year is estimated at about 18 per 
cent higher than in 1946. Though part of the 
increase is due to increased employment it 
also reflects substantially higher rates of 
pay. A rough estimate of average annual 
earnings per employed worker — obtained 
by comparing the above total with the 
average number of paid workers in civilian 
employment — places them at about $1,880, 
about $215 (13 per cent) higher than in 1946. 
The two other main components of net nation- 
al income, income of agricultural and other 
unincorporated business, and investment in- 
come, showed increases of 13 and 8 per cent, 
respectively during 1947. The smaller increase 
in investment income is at least partially 
accounted for by a decline in government 
trading profits. 

Because of a substantial decline in govern- 
ment transfer payments to persons, total 
personal income increased by a smaller amount 
than either the net national income or the 
gross national product. Though the propor- 
tion of personal income taken by direct taxes 
declined only slightly during the year, there 
was a fairly substantial reduction in personal 
savings. Total personal savings were estimated 
at 768 million for 1947 in comparison with 
1,060 million in 1946. This is a decline from 
about 11 per cent to 7.5 per cent of personal 
income. Correspondingly the proportion of 
income devoted to expenditure on goods and 
services increased from about 81 to 85 per cent. 
Higher prices for essential commodities and 
the greater availability of goods were both 
factors in this shift from savings to expendi- 
ture. 

1947' s Rise in Industrial Production 

Industrial production showed gains during 
1947 in almost every field. The chief exceptions 
were in the output of coal, a result of the 
protracted strike in Nova Scotia early in the 
year, in the output of packing house products, 
and in boot and shoe production. In general, 
expansion was greater in the durable goods 
field. Thus the index of durable manufactured 
goods increased about 16 per cent whereas the 



non-durable group advanced a little less than 

7 per cent. 

Leading the way was motor vehicle produc- 
tion with a gain of over 50 per cent and the out- 
put of primary iron steel products and electrical 
apparatus, both of which increased by over 

30 per cent. Some individual electrical products 
such as radios, refrigerators and washing 
machines showed even sharper gains. In the 
non-durable group, rubber products showed 
the sharpest rise — 50 per cent. Next in order 
came pulp and paper with a gain of about 
10 per cent, followed by production of refined 
petroleum products with an increase of about 

8 per cent. Food, textiles and clothing all 
showed smaller increases ranging from about 
2 to 6 per cent. 

Construction Developments 

Awards of construction contracts during 1947 
exceeded the dollar value of awards in 1946 by 
about 8 per cent and, in view of the higher 
prices prevailing in the year just past, it seems 
probable that the volume of work involved in 
these contracts was somewhat lower. Though 
the dollar total of awards was higher most of 
the gain was shown in contracts of a public or 
semi-public type and the contracts for private 
construction were, in general, lower. Thus 
contracts for industrial construction declined 
18 per cent and for residential construction by 
over 7 per cent. In contrast an increase of 88 
per cent was registered by contracts for hos- 
pitals, schools and other public buildings in the 
business group and a gain of 34 per cent was 
shown by the general engineering group, main- 
ly on account of electric power developments. 
The only type of private business construction 
to show a gain was office buildings, up 83 per 
cent, whereas awards for theatres, warehouses, 
hotels and garages were all lower than in 1946. 

Because of the backlog of work in the hands 
of contractors, awards of new contracts are not 
always a good indication of current fluctuations 
in the volume of construction. A better guide 
is provided by the index of employment in 
building construction; this index continued 
steadily upward throughout 1947 and averaged 

31 per cent higher than in 1946. The falling 
off in contract awards during the early summer 
of 1947 was at no time reflected in the employ- 
ment data.

( 'Excluding producers' interchange. 

(2) Prior to 1946, exports include pigs, ingots, blooms, billets and rolling mill products. 

(3) Prior to 1946, imports include castings and forgings and rolling mill products. Since 1946, they include, in 
addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after refinishing 
in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 
72 percent of the total production of ingots.

Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutse 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transactions. — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout.

The Cost-of-Living Index 



How it is Made; What it Tells 



A GOOD deal of confusion can come from 
expecting too much of a cost-of-living index 
and asking it to show things which it was never 
designed to show. The Canadian index mea- 
sures the change in the cost of a fixed standard 
of living. The standard chosen was that of an 
average urban wage-earner's family in the 
years 1937 and 1938. It is true that living 
standards — particularly in that group — have 
changed materially since the index was made 
up, but tests have shown that even if a sub- 
stantially higher standard of living were taken 
as a basis for the index the change in the cost of 
meeting that standard would vary little from 
the change in the cost of meeting the standard 
on which the index is based. 

The important point to remember is that 
the index measures changing costs of living 
and not changing standards of living It is an 
index of price movements and not of changes in 
j total family expenditures. This may be the 
cause of some of the misunderstanding, for 
| Canadians as a whole have increased their 
standard of living during the past ten years and 
it is easy to confuse the greater cost of a higher 
living standard with an increase in the prices 
i of the goods and services in a fixed family 
budget. 

Further, the index measures only average 
changes for cities and towns across the country. 
Certainly the cost of living for some families 
has, due to their particular circumstances, 
risen more sharply than the index, but against 
this the cost for other families has risen less 
sharply. It is true, too, that living costs in 
jsome cities move differently from those in 
others, but the indexes prepared by the Bureau 
for eight major Canadian cities show that the 
inter-city differences are relatively small. 

The Basis of the Index 

In setting out to revise the index in 1937 the 
Bureau considered that the best way to get a 
realistic measurement of the cost of living was 
to base it on the actual expenditures made 
during a year by an average Canadian wage- 



earning family. They therefore made a survey 
of some 45,000 homes in 12 cities across Canada 
and from this picked out 1,439 typical families 
with earnings between $600 and $2,500 a year. 
They then helped each of these families to 
prepare a careful record of their living expenses 
from October 1st, 1937, until September 30th, 
1938. 

Each family consisted of husband and wife 
and from one to five children. They were all 
self-supporting, lived in a self-contained house 
or apartment, and did not share either their 
kitchen or their bathroom with any other 
family. The average family contained 4.6 
people and had an income of $1,453. Of this 
amount $1,414 was spent on items which could 
be included in the cost of living, while the rest 
went to such things as gifts and donations to 
charities. 31% of the $1,414 was spent on food, 
19% on housing, 6% on fuel and light, 12% on 
clothing, 9%, on home furnishings and services, 
and 23% on other items, including health, 
transportation, recreation and insurance. 

Collecting the Prices 

The survey having been made, the Bureau 
knew what items to include and what impor- 
tance — or "weight" — to give them. The next 
step was to get regular reports on prices of 
these items from the different parts of the 
country. Here problems arose. Theoretically 
one might expect to collect each month prices 
for every item included in the budget of the 
"cost of living family", but in practice this does 
not always work. 

Take the case of food. Many foods have wide 
seasonal price changes and as a result their 
consumption varies; more is eaten when the 
price is low and less when the price is high. 
Variations in consumption from season to 
season and from year to year are so great that it 
is extremely difficult to give these foods a 
correct weight in the budget. Then there is 
also the problem of getting comparable prices. 
Many of the fresh vegetables in particular are 
not always sold upon a weight basis but by the 






bunch or single item, so price changes may 
reflect quantity or size changes as well. To 
include these items could lessen rather than 
increase the accuracy of the index. 

It is therefore preferable to pick out those 
foods on which a representative price can be 
obtained from month to month. The index now 
includes 47 food items which represent about 
75% of the total cost of foods in the basic 
budget. The other 25% on which a price is not 
obtained are considered to have changed by the 
same amount as all foods and an appropriate 
allowance is made for them in the "weight" of 
the food group. 

Difficulties in Pricing Clothing 

This statistical practice of taking a relatively 
small sample of prices as indicative of the 
movements of a much larger group is well 
tested and widely used in all countries. It is 
employed to a greater or lesser extent in all 
groups in the cost-of-living index. To take 
another example, look at clothing. This group 
is complicated by many of the items being 
seasonal in character or difficult to compare 
from year to year because of style changes. A 
lady's hat may sell in season at $8.95 and be 
cleared later at $4.98 or less. The same is true of 
dresses, coats, and other items. 

To include such prices in the index would 
cause erratic movements which would not 
follow the basic changes in clothing prices, and 
therefore the Bureau has selected a comparati- 
vely small list of 31 clothing items of fairly 
standard construction and having no pro- 
nounced seasonal movements. They represent 
in proper proportion all the important mate- 
rials used in clothing and were chosen to give a 
representative record of the rise or fall in all 
clothing prices — including those for children's 
clothing, for which a full "weight" is allowed 
in the index. 

Another difficult problem, particularly appli- 
cable to clothing and home furnishings, is that 
of measuring changes in quality. A deterioration 
of quality represents a "hidden" price increase 
and an appreciation of quality a "hidden" 
price decrease, but many people seem to feel 
that the Bureau takes no cognizance of this. 
That is not the case. When asking for price 
reports the Bureau requests the correspondent 
to estimate the extent of any changes in quality 



compared with the article at the time of the 
previous quotation, and such quality changes 
are recorded as a price increase or decrease. 

An Index is Constructed 

Prices are collected once a month for those 
items which fluctuate frequently, and at 
somewhat longer intervals for the more stable 
items. Food prices, for example, are collected 
monthly from 1,600 grocers and butchers repre- 
senting both chain and independent stores in 
64 towns and cities. Rents have been surveyed 
twice a year, during the May and October 
renting periods, by reports received from 
renting agencies in 61 different cities. Starting 
in March, however, a new quarterly survey will 
replace the semi-annual one and will be con- 
ducted by direct visits by Bureau representa- 
tives to a carefully selected sample of house- 
holds across Canada. 

All in all, about 65,000 different prices come 
into the Bureau each month. Many of them 
are reported by industrial companies and 
tradesmen — whose cooperation is indispensable 
— but a large volume in the main centres is 
collected by the Bureau's own field representa- 
tives. When the prices are tabulated they are 
given their correct weighting and transformed 
into an index number which presents the 
changes in the cost of living in terms of per- 
centage increases or decreases compared with 
the cost during the "base period". The base 
used for the Canadian cost-of-living index is 
the average of the years 1935 to 1939 — which is 
shown as 100. The index is computed as at the 
first business day of each month, and in spite of 
the volume of work involved in collecting, 
tabulating, and "processing" so large a number 
of prices, it is published on the fourth day of 
the following month. 

It has often been suggested that the cost of 
living should be published not as an index but 
as a dollar and cents figure. This is not done 
for two reasons. In the first place, it would 
then record changes for only those people in 
that specific income group, and those in a 
different group would have to translate the 
change into a percentage figure — in fact would 
have to construct an index for themselves. 
Secondly, a dollar and cents quotation would 
suggest that the figure represents a minimum 
standard of living or a satisfactory dietary 
standard, neither of which the cost-of-living 



u 






index professes to do. It simply measures the 
changes in the cost of a wage-earner's budget as 
it was in 1937-38. 

The Adequacy of the Present Basis 

This raises the question as to whether it is 
satisfactory to base a cost-of-living index on a 
ten-year-old pattern of expenditures. Average 
incomes have risen in the past decade, particu- 
larly in the wage-earning groups, and as the 
level of incomes changes so does the pattern of 
expenditure. A changing pattern of expend- 
iture, however, does not necessarily greatly 
alter the rate of change of the cost of living. If 
incomes have risen, for example, additional 
expenditures on goods the prices of which have 
risen more rapidly — such as meat — might 
roughly be balanced by other additional 
expenditures on rent or some other item which 
has changed less than the average. 

In an attempt to test how much difference a 
change in the pattern of expenditures might be 
expected to make, the Bureau recently re- 
computed the cost-of-living index by reweight- 
ing the main groups according to four different 
systems. The first was based on the recently 
published U.S. "City Workers' Family Budget" 
of $3,000 per annum, the second on the 1946 
patterns of consumer expenditure in Canada 
as derived from the National Accounts, the 
third on the 1938 consumer patterns as derived 
from the same source, and the fourth on a 
budget prepared by the Toronto Welfare 
Council. 

The following table shows the D.B.S. cost-of- 
living index for January, 1948, together with 
the index with the groups re weigh ted in the 
four ways : 

D.B.S. cost-of-living index 148.3 

U.S. City Workers' family budget weights 150.3 

1946 Canadian consumer expenditure pattern 146.6 

1938 Canadian consumer expenditure pattern 144.5 

Toronto Welfare Council weights 151.0 

These experiments show what is quite obvious, 
that a change in the pattern of expenditures 
may have some effect on the rate of change in 
the cost-of-living index, but they also show that 
the change will be relatively small and may be 
in either direction. 



Remember, too, that the index aims only to 
represent the average, and the cost of living of 
certain individuals may move differently to the 
average. For example a family which in the 
last year or so has had to move from a house on 
which the rent was fixed at the 1939 level into a 
new house with a much higher rent will have 
experienced a substantially greater increase in 
the cost of living than the index shows. On the 
other hand, a family still living in a house with 
1939 rent, or with only the 10% increase on that 
rent which was authorized last year, will be 
below the average rental increase of 19.9% 
shown in the index. It would be impossible for 
an index to embrace individual circumstances 
such as these. 

Just because an examination of the present 
index shows it as a good representation of 
average changes in Canadian urban living costs 
does not mean that the Bureau is resting on its 
oars. In the first place, minor changes in the 
weighting or in the list of items included are 
made from time to time as circumstances 
warrant. Three such changes were made in 
1947. The allowance for sugar, which had been 
reduced when rationing was imposed, was 
raised from 3.5 to 4.8 pounds per week after 
the removal of rationing; the ratio of houses to 
apartments in the rent index was changed to 
bring it into line with present conditions as 
indicated in sample surveys of tenants con- 
ducted last May and October; and radios, 
refrigerators, and washing machines were 
added when improved supply made it possible 
to buy them readily. 

Secondly, the Bureau is planning a budgetary 
survey this summer with a view to establishing 
a new basis for the index on present patterns of 
expenditure and standards of living. There is 
every indication that a new basic budget will 
produce little significant change in the trends 
shown by the present index, but it is standard 
practice to resurvey a cost-of-living index once 
every ten years or so because the cumulative 
effect of short term changes might otherwise 
lead to significant changes over a much longer 
period.

Economic Conditions in February 



During February wholesale prices moved 
downward for the first time in more than a 
year. A further decline in government bond 
prices, a new international wheat agreement, 
and a slight decline in industrial activity partly 
as a result of power shortages were other 
highlights. 

The sharp break in United States commodity 
prices during early February was checked after 
a fall of about 10 per cent. A small but un- 
certain recovery followed until a further drop 
in early March brought prices of 28 commo- 
dities to the lowest point in seven months. 
The February decline was reflected to a small 
extent in Canadian markets and the index of 
industrial materials fell slightly more than 
two points in the four- week period ending 
February 27. In the same period the index for 
Canadian farm product prices fell from 133.9 to 
132.3. 

A further decline in the prices of Canadian 
Government bonds brought the yield on the 
longest dated issues to slightly less than three 
per cent per annum, the rate of interest at 
which Canadian Government bonds were issued 
during the war years. These declines followed 
a similar drop in government bond prices in the 
United States and the United Kingdom during 
the latter part of 1947. 

Though shortages of electric power and 
natural gas in some areas placed a small check 
on the rate of industrial activity during the 
past two months, industrial production has 
continued high. The index for January was 
176, only a little below the last quarter for 1947. 
Automobile production, affected by the short- 
age of gas, was down about 16 per cent from 
December. Steel output, on the other hand, 
was slightly higher and production for the 
month was at about 87 percent of reported 
capacity. Freight carloadings declined more 
than seasonally during February but recovered 
sharply during the last week of the month. 
Part of this recovery resulted from the settle- 
ment of the coal strike in Alberta and British 
Columbia. 



Farmers' Income 

An international wheat agreement covering 
the 5 crop years beginning August 1, 1948, has 
been reached by representatives of 36 countries. 
This agreement provides a maximum export 
price for wheat of $2.00 per bushel throughout 
the period and a minimum price of $1.50 for 
the year 1948/49, falling by ten cents per year to 
$1.10 for the crop year 1952/53. Canada, 



United States and Australia, the three export- 
ing countries in the agreement, agree to 
supply up to 500 million bushels of wheat 
each year to the 33 importing countries, 
Canada's share in this total is 230 million 
bushels. Any sales in addition to this total 
are outside the agreement. An agreement of 
this nature is of great importance to Canadian 
agriculture for, on the average, over the last 
22 years, more than 26 per cent of cash farm 
income in Canada has been received from the 
sale of wheat. 

During 1947, Canadian farmers' cash income 
from the sale of farm products reached a 
record high of $1,991 million, about 14 per cent 
higher than in 1946. Farmers in Alberta 
received the sharpest increase, over 20 per 
cent, but they were closely followed by farmers 
in Quebec and Ontario with increases of 17 and 
16 per cent respectively. All other provinces 
showed gains ranging from about 7 to 10 per 
cent, except for Nova Scotia where farm income 
was slightly lower than in 1946. Though the 
output of some farm products in 1947 was 
higher, production as a whole was below that 
of 1946 and the gain in cash farm income can 
be attributed to higher prices, an increase in 
payments on wheat participation certificates 
and a small reduction in farm inventories. 

Prices for the things that farmers buy 
were also rising, the price index of commodities 
and services used by farmers (including farm 
living costs) advanced almost 19 per cent 
during 1947. On January 1, 1948, the index was 
168.5 on a base 1935-39 = 100. 

The largest rise, about 28 per cent, was 
shown by the equipment and materials group. 
Higher prices for oats and barley were major 
factors in this rise. Even at its present level of 
168.5, however, the index is substantially below 
the index number of farm prices of agricultural 
products. In January the latter index reached 
222.1 on a base 1935-39= 100. 



Price Changes in Two World Wars 

Because of the current widespread interest in 
prices it might be useful to summarize briefly 
the price changes which occurred during and 
immediately following the first world war. 
Altered circumstances make it impossible to 
apply conclusions drawn from this earlier 
period directly to the current situation, but the 
information should be useful to all who are 
trying to make some judgment about the 
probable course of prices over the next few 
years.

Smoothed data 



One outstanding feature of the period after 
World War I was the remarkable stability of 
prices following the sharp recession in 1921. 
During the eight years from 1922 to 1929 the 
cost-of-living index did not vary more than 
about 3 per cent in either direction from its 
average level. The wholesale price index, 
though slightly more variable, was also quite 
stable; its extreme range of variation through- 
out this period being from 93.4 to 106.0. 
Because prices had also been fairly stable in the 
period immediately before 1914, it is possible to 
give an accurate measure of the extent to 
which prices rose as a result of World War I. 
Comparison of the average level of prices for 
the period from 1922 to 1926 with the average 
from 1910 to 1914 shows that the cost-of-living 
index stabilized at a level slightly over 50 per 
cent higher than pre-war and the wholesale 
price index levelled out at about 55 per cent 
above its pre-war average. Not even in 1933 
in the depths of the depression, did either the 
cost-of-living index or the wholesale price 
index fall below their levels in the period just 
before World War I. 

Though both the cost-of-living index and 
the wholesale price index stabilized at more 
than 50 per cent higher than their pre-World 
War I levels this was still substantially below 
the peak reached during the immediate post- 
war years. After reaching peaks in the middle 
of 1920 the cost-of-living index declined by 
about 20 per cent and the wholesale price 
index fell almost 40 per cent. For the cost-of- 
living index the greatest decline was shown by 
food and clothing prices; both of these groups 
fell about 36 per cent. In contrast, the index 
of rents continued to rise throughout the 
period when other prices were falling. In the 
wholesale group farm prices led the downward 
trend with a fall of about 47 per cent whereas 
building and construction materials fell by 
less than 30 per cent. 

A comparison of this period with the present 
shows that prices have not yet risen as much 
as they did during and after World War I. 
The cost-of-living index at February 1, 1948, 
had risen just over 50 per cent over its average 
level from 1935-39 and the wholesale price 
index for January, 1948, was up about 90 per 
cent. At their peak in 1920 the cost-of-living 
index was up about 89 per cent and the whole- 
sale price index had risen about 158 per cent 
from the 1910 to 1914 average. 



Changes in Prairie Agriculture 

A preliminary release on the 1946 Census of 
the Prairie Provinces reveals a number of 
changes in farm practices over the past five 
years. The trend toward larger farms has 
-1 continued, the average size of farm having 



VI 



increased from 376 acres in 1936, to 405 acres in 
1941, and to 437 acres in 1946. Accompanying 
this trend to larger farms has been an increase 
in farm ownership. The proportion of farm 
land operated by tenants decreased from 
about 38 per cent in 1941 to 34 per cent in 

1946. Farm debts also declined sharply. Total 
mortgages and agreements of sale decreased 
almost 50 per cent over this five-year period. 
Most of this decline resulted from farms 
becoming entirely free of this form of debt. 
For farms still reporting debt the average debt 
per farm was almost unchanged at a little 
over $2,500 per farm. 

Data on the number of farm implements 
show a pronounced trend to more mechanized 
farming. The number of tractors on prairie 
farms at June 1, 1946, was estimated to be 
about 153,000, almost double the number ten 
years earlier and 36 per cent greater than in 
1941. Increased use of grain combines instead 
of the binder and threshing machine for 
harvesting operations was also in evidence. 
The number of combines on farms more 
than doubled between 1941 and 1946. Some 
evidence of more rural electrification is pro- 
vided by the fourfold increase in the number 
of electric motors on farms. In 1946, about 
one out of every twenty-five farms reported 
one or more electric motors whereas in 1941 
only one out of eighty farms possessed such an 
item. 

1947 Savings and Investment Pattern 

The way in which current savings were 
channeled into the hands of investors was 
subject to a rather unusual pattern during 

1947. Both the Dominion Government and the 
chartered banks played an important inter- 
mediate part in this process. 

To begin with, personal savings and total 
private investment in Canada moved in oppo- 
site directions. Total private investment 
increased from about $1.8 billion in 1946 to 
a total of $2.8 billion in 1947 and the require- 
ments of private investors for funds to finance 
this expenditure rose by a like amount. In 
contrast, personal savings of individuals de- 
clined from about $1.1 billion to $.8 billion. 
Thus during a period when personal savings 
were falling about $300 million, the require- 
ment for funds to finance private investment 
was rising by about $1 billion. Not even all 
of the $.8 billion of personal savings was 
directly available to private investors, since 
some part of this total was absorbed through 
the sale of Canada Savings Bonds to individuals. 
These savings were returned to the capital 
market in the manner described below. 

During the year the Dominion Government 
was receiving funds from three important 
sources, from the sale of Canada Savings

Bonds to the public, from its current surplus 
of revenues over expenditures and from advances 
returned by the Foreign Exchange Control 
Board as their holdings of foreign exchange 
declined. Part of these funds were advanced to 
the United Kingdom and other countries 
under our loan arrangements with these 
countries and were used to help finance our 
exports to them. The remainder was returned 
to the capital market by the retirement of 
outstanding government securities. 

The sales of Canada Savings Bonds during 
1947 were reported at $315 million and redemp- 
tions amounted to $118 million. Thus the net 
receipt of funds from this source was just 
under $200 million. For the second source, 
statements released in the Canada Gazette 
show an overall surplus for the Dominion 
Government of about $750 million for the 
calendar year 1947. Some measurement of the 
amount obtained from the third important 
source of funds is given by the overall decline 
in the gold and foreign exchange holdings of 
the Foreign Exchange Control Board. This 
decline amounted to $743 million during 1947 
and except for our $74 million subscription to 
the International Monetary Funds, the sale of 
these holdings would yield a roughly equi- 
valent amount of Canadian dollars. 

As was pointed out above, these funds were 
used partly to meet our advances under the 
United Kingdom loan and the Export Credits 
Insurance Act and partly to retire outstanding 
government securities both short and long 
term. The amount of the former advances has 
been estimated at about $560 million for the 
year 1947. If securities held in various govern- 
ment accounts are excluded, the net retirement 
of Dominion Government debt, both long 
and short term, amounted to about $1,112 
million during 1947. Government securities 
held by the Bank of Canada and the chartered 
banks declined by $692 million and the holdings 
of all other investors went down about $420 
million. In 1946 the comparable figure on 
debt retirement was $263 million. This debt 
retirement was the procedure by which the 
government returned these funds to the 
capital market. 



Because a substantial part of the debt 
retirement was in securities held by the char- 
tered banks they also played an important part 
in the savings investment process. Their 
holdings of Dominion Government securities 
declined by $669 million during the year. 
Meanwhile the chartered banks were extending 
an even greater amount of funds than this to 
the capital and loan market; $461 million in 
the form of current loans and $316 million via 
the purchase of securities from corporations 
and from municipal and provincial govern- 
ments. 

New Index of Industrial Production 
for U.K. 

A new index of industrial production for the 
United Kingdom has just been published by 
the London and Cambridge Economic Service. 
This index covers manufacturing (except for 
finished munitions), mining, building, con- 
struction and public utilities and is available by 
months for 1946 and 1947. As shown by this 
index, industrial production in the United 
Kingdom during 1947 averaged about 9 per 
cent higher than in 1946. The largest gains 
were shown by industrial machinery and 
equipment with a rise of 24 per cent, and by 
motors, cycles, and aircraft with an increase 
of 20 per cent. Output of textiles increased 
about 6 per cent over 1946 and production of 
clothing and leather goods advanced about 
8 per cent. 

Although the new index does not provide 
any comparison with earlier years, such a 
comparison is available for a number of indi- 
vidual series. For the last quarter of 1947 
output of steel was about 6 per cent higher 
than the 1937 average and the output of rayon 
yarn and waste was over 50 per cent higher. 
On the other hand, coal production for this 
same quarter had just recovered to 87 per cent 
of its 1937 average and cotton consumption 
in the textile industry was still slightly less 
than 60 per cent of 1937 levels. The volume 
of exports for the third quarter of 1947 was 
slightly higher than in 1937 and about 10 per 
cent higher than the same quarter a year 
earlier.

( Excluding producers' interchange. 
'Prior to 1946, exports include pigs, ingots, blooms, billets and rolling mill products. 

'Prior to 1946, imports include castings and forgings and rolling mill products. Since 1946, they include, in 
addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after refinishing 
in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 
72 percent of the total production of ingots.

' 'Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutes 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transactions. — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout.

Canada's Balance of International Payments in 1947 



Taken together, the national accounts and 
the balance of international payments give a 
good picture of a country's current economic 
position. The former show the domestic level 
of prosperity and the latter reveal whether 
there is any risk of running short of the means 
of foreign payment necessary to support that 
level. 

Canada's national accounts for 1947 were dis- 
cussed in the Canadian Statistical Review, 
lanuary 1948, pages v-vii ; personal expenditures 
md savings were referred to in the February 
ssue, page vii ; and the figures will be found in 
rable 4 in this issue. In 1947 the gross national 
woduct reached an all-time high in terms of 
current dollars. Much of the rise during the 
>ast year was due to higher prices, but even 
ifter allowing for this there was some increase 
n volume. Particularly significant was the 
harp rise in expenditures on private invest- 
nent and on consumer's goods. 

Figures for the balance of international pay- 
nents for 1947 have just been released^ ; they 
lemonstrate vividly some of the problems that 
lave been created by our high and rising na- 
ional income working in conjunction with 
vents beyond our borders. While our exports 
icreased, our imports increased even more 
apidly and our current accounts surplus was 
reatly reduced. Furthermore, most of the 
lcrease in our imports was from the United 
tates, and since only part of our exports was 
aid for in convertible exchange it was neces- 
ary to draw heavily on our official reserves of 
old and U.S. dollars to meet our obligations 
l that country. 

hortage of U.S. Dollars 

Canada's merchandise exports rose from 
2,393 million in 1946 to $2,723 million in 1947, 
id her total current credits rose from $3,359 
lillion to $3,733 million; our imports of mer- 
landise, on the other hand, rose from $1,822 
lillion in 1946 to $2,535 million in 1947, and 
m total current debits rose from $2,905 mil- 
ion to $3,648 million. As a result of these 
langes our credit balance from all interna- 
onal transactions on current account (i.e., 
:cluding movements of capital) with all coun- 
ies fell from $357 million in 1946 to $47 
illion in 1947, excluding official relief. 
With the United States we have traditionally 
id a current deficit, but last year, due to 
reatly increased imports resulting from our

atistics, Ottawa; and Report of the Foreign Exchange 
ntrol Board for the Year 1947, Ottawa. 



higher purchasing power, it reached the un- 
precedented figure of $1,138 million. This 
compares with $613 million in 1946, $116 million 
in 1939, and an inter-war peak of $437 million 
in 1929. In addition to this current account 
deficit with the United States, there were net 
exports of capital from Canada to that country 
during 1947 of $163 million, mainly for redemp- 
tion of securities, and a subscription in gold 
to the International Monetary Fund of $74 
million. This, together with a "balancing 
item" of $6 million (due to errors and omis- 
sions), brought our total requirements for U.S. 
dollars to $1,381 million. 

Before the war we were accustomed to use the 
proceeds of our surplus of exports to overseas 
countries to pay for, or to help to pay for, our 
surplus of imports from the United States, but 
that is no longer possible. Due to the economic 
dislocation in war- torn European countries — 
a dislocation which proved to be more serious 
than most people had anticipated and which 
was greatly exaggerated by the severe winter of 
1946-47 and the poor harvests of 1947 — these 
countries cannot yet export sufficient to provide 
them with enough dollars to pay for all of their 
essential imports. 

A large proportion of Canada's exports, there- 
fore, were made on credit and we only received 
payments of $638 million in a form convertible 
into U.S. dollars. It was consequently neces- 
sary for Canada to draw on her official reserves 
of gold and U.S. dollars to the extent of $743 
million, reducing them from $1,245 million on 
December 31, 1946, to $502 million on December 
31, 1947. The immediate effect of the remedial 
measures adopted in mid-November, 1947, 
appears to have been at least to check this 
drain. 

Tables and Chart 

The three tables on pages v and vi of this 
issue summarize the movements in Canada's 
balance of payments. Table A shows changes 
in current account credits, debits, and net 
balance from 1926 to 1947, table B shows the 
main components of the current account for 
1939, 1946 and 1947, and table C shows the main 
changes in the capital account for the same 
years. It might be helpful to give a few defini- 
tions of certain semi- technical terms used in 
these tables and in the Balance of Payments 
Report : 

Exports of non- monetary gold are in effect 
identical with Canada's current gold pro- 
duction, for sales of gold to the Foreign Ex- 
change Control Board are recorded as exports 



even if they are for the time-being held in 
Canada, since gold is at any time convert- 
ible into U.S. dollars at a fixed rate. 

Official Reserves are the reserves of gold and 
U.S. dollars held by the Foreign Exchange 
Control Board and the Dominion Govern- 
ment. Private holdings of U.S. dollars are 
limited to working balances, and therefore 
cannot be regarded as reserves. 

Official Contributions include Mutual Aid 
and UNRRA or post-UNRRA relief financed 
by appropriations of the Canadian Parlia- 
ment. Official Relief is UNRRA or post- 
UNRRA Relief. In addition to these contri- 
butions, shipments by individuals and pri- 
vate organizations of food and other goods 
as gifts and relief are recorded in the export 
statistics to a value of nearly $11 million in 
1947, but no records are available of the prob- 
ably quite substantial total of small indivi- 
dual shipments. 

Overseas Countries are all countries other 
than the United States and Newfoundland, 
the latter not being considered as separate 
from Canada for balance of payments pur- 
poses. 

The chart on page ii, which shows Canadian 
merchandise exports to and imports from cer- 
tain important countries and groups of coun- 
tries, for 1938 and 1939 in contrast with 1946 
and 1947, demonstrates graphically the main 
source of unbalance in our trading position. 
It shows how our great expansion in exports 
has been concentrated in the United Kingdom, 
other members of the Commonwealth, and 
western European countries, all of which are 
short of U.S. dollar exchange, whereas our great 
increase in imports has been from the United 
States. Exports to Latin America show a sub- 
stantial rise, but this was offset by an even 
greater increase in imports from those coun- 
tries. 

Transactions with the United States 

Merchandise imports from the United States 
rose from nearly $1,400 million in 1946 to nearly 
$2,000 million in 1947. This was largely a direct 
result of our domestic prosperity, which in its 
turn can be attributed to the high level of 
exports and high investment activity—the lat- 
ter being in part also a resultant of the high 
income derived from exports, and in part due 
to a relatively low level of investment activity, 
except in war industries, for nearly 20 years. 

The magnitude of the demands arising out 
of various forms of private investment is in- 
dicated by the ratio of gross home investment 
(i.e. expenditures for new machinery, for resi- 
dential and other construction, and for inven- 



tories) to gross national expenditure, which 
was over 21 percent in 1947 compared with 
about 15 per cent in 1946 and about 11 per cent 
in 1938 (see table 4). Important components 
of the import figures were capital goods; in- 
dustrial materials and parts, reflecting high 
activity in Canadian industry; and consumer's 
goods, reflecting the high level of purchasing 
power. The replenishment of inventories con- 
tributed substantially to the increase in all 
these groups. 

Other factors contributing to our high im- 
ports from the United States were (1) the in- 
ability of other foreign countries to supply us 
with certain goods in anything approaching 
adequate quantities (textiles is a case in point), 
and (2) the sharp rise in American prices. The 
Balance of Payments Report points out that 
it is hard to say how much the latter contrib- 
uted but estimates that perhaps half of the 
increase of approximately $570 million in the 
cost of our imports from the United States can 
be attributed to this cause. 

Canada's "non-merchandise" debits with 
the United States also showed an increase. 
Payments for freight and shipping were higher 
on account of the greater volume of imports 
carried by American lines, and also due to the 
increases in American freight rates during 
the year; and there was little compensating in- 
crease in American payments for Canadian 
freight because of the relative stability of our 
exports to the United States. Higher payments 
of dividends reflected the larger earnings of Ca- 
nadian industrial companies and American 
owned subsidiary companies, as well as some 
withdrawal of accumulated income. 

In contrast to an increase of more than 30 
per cent in Canada's current payments to the 
United States, receipts from that country rose 
by less than 9 per cent during 1947. This was 
mainly because our commitments to the 
United Kingdom and other overseas countries, 
coupled with somewhat reduced crops, pre- 
vented any more than a moderate increase in 
our merchandise exports to the United States. 

In our capital transactions with the United 
States the principal item was the redemption 
of Canadian securities held by U.S. dollar area 
residents to an amount of $223 million. Net 
repurchases of outstanding Canadian securities 
caused a capital outflow of $9 million while the 
redemption and sales of U.S. and foreign se- 
curities caused an inflow of $13 million. Capital 
movements not connected with security trans- 
actions produced a net inflow of $56 million. 
Apart, therefore, from the liquidation of re- 
serves to meet our U.S. dollar requirements, 
our capital transactions with the United States 
resulted in a reduction in our indebtedness to 
that country.

Transactions with the United Kingdom 
and Other Overseas Countries 

The predominant element in our trade with 
the United Kingdom and other countries of 
the sterling area in 1947 was the continued 
rise in merchandise exports, which reached a 
peace-time peak of $1,116 million, compared 
with $895 million in 1946. Our current balance 
with the United Kingdom in 1947 was $632 mil- 
lion, and with other parts of the sterling area 
$240 million, compared respectively with $500 
million and $164 million in 1946. 

Canada received $505 million in convertible 
exchange from the United Kingdom during 
1947, and drawings on the Canadian loan to 
the United Kingdom amounted to $423 million 
in 1947 and to $963 million from the time the 
loan was negotiated in 1946 to the end of 1947. 
Since no convertible exchange was received 
from the United Kingdom in 1946 following 
the receipt of gold in March of that year in 
connection with the settlement of war claims, 
the payments of convertible exchange to Can- 
ada in 1947 should be related to the total British 
drawings on the Canadian loan. As the Foreign 
Exchange Control Board Report points out, 
the U.S. dollars which Canada received from 
the United Kingdom were negotiated in con- 
nection with the Canadian Government loan 
and bore no relation to the convertibility of 
sterling. 

With overseas countries other than the ster- 
ling area Canada had a current surplus in 1947 
of $313 million compared with $306 million in 
1946, both totals being exclusive of official relief. 
Total convertible exchange received from this 
group of countries was $133 million, somewhat 
above the amount received in 1946. Net export 
credits advanced to them by the Canadian 
Government amounted to $140 million com- 
pared with $210 million in 1946. 



Current Account Problems 

An increase in imports and a decline in the 
overall credit balance are by no means unique 
in Canada's economic experience. They are 
the normal companions of a period of pros- 
perity and high investment activity. In fact, 
during other similar periods we have encoun- 
tered an overall deficit on current account. 

The outstanding difference, of course, be- 
tween our experience in 1947 and in former 
times was the shortage of dollars on the part 
of many of our customers and the consequent 
advancement of credits by Canada to assist in 
the rehabilitation of Europe. In the face of 
the rapid drain on Canada's official reserves 
which this produced, the Canadian Government 
announced on November 17, 1947, a series of 
corrective measures. These fell into two cate- 
gories : temporary restrictions on a wide variety 
of imports and on travel designed to decrease 
our payments in U.S. dollars; and longer run 
constructive measures designed to increase 
our total exports and to deflect a proportion of 
them to U.S. dollar countries. 

Further substantial assistance will be given 
by the European Recovery Program in the 
United States, for part of the dollars provided 
for European countries by that program can 
be spent in Canada. As the Report of the 
Foreign Exchange Control Board points out, 
however, our problems are still by no means 
over if we are to follow the prudent course of 
replenishing our exchange reserves and at the 
same time to maintain our exports and to con- 
tinue to purchase from the United States those 
imports essential to our productive output. 
It is not realistic to imagine that all loans can 
cease, and consequently we need a current 
account surplus larger than our loans to enable 
us to build up reserves.

Current Economic Conditions 



A levelling out of the upward rise in prices 
coupled with a continuing high volume of 
industrial production, and some rise in un- 
employment, has featured the first quarter of 
1948. An increase in freight rates and a number 
of developments in the United States have also 
affected the current outlook. 

The general 21 per cent advance in a wide 
range of railway freight rates was authorized 
late in March by the Board of Transport Com- 
missioners but the effects this will have on 
existing price levels are not yet clear. Final 
passage of the European Recovery Program by 
the United States Congress, together with a 
number of proposals for increased defence ex- 
penditures, have contributed to a substantial 
recovery in stock prices both in Canada and 
the United States. Prospects for uninter- 
rupted production have also been improved by 
the settlement of the almost month long 
strike of the United States soft coal miners. 

The $6,098 million voted under E.R.P. should 
help ensure a continued demand for products 
of the whole dollar area during the coming 
year. It is equal to about 31 per cent of the 
total value of goods and services exported by 
the United States during 1947 and amounts to 
about 2.6 per cent of their gross national pro- 
duct for the year. An equivalent percentage 
of Canada's 1947 national product would 
amount to about $345 million, just over 60 
per cent of the amount of loans and credits 
advanced to European countries by this country 
during 1947. 

While a construction program equal in vol- 
ume to that of the preceding year has been 
forecast for 1948, current statistical data show 
a few signs of weakness. Despite the higher 
level of building costs the dollar value of con- 
tracts awarded during the first quarter of 1948 
is down almost 6 per cent from the same period 
in 1947. This drop is concentrated in the non- 
residential sector; contracts for business, in- 
dustrial and engineering construction are down 
about 34 per cent while residential contracts, 
supported in part by government projects are 
up over two and one-half times. Another sign 
of weakness is provided by the index of employ- 
ment in building construction, and this index 
has shown an unusually sharp drop (see chart) 
from December 1 to February 1, though after 
this decline it is still 15 per cent above its level 
a year earlier. Incidentally, it is worth noting 
that, in view of the upward trend in construc- 
tion activity throughout 1947, a program of 
equal size for 1948 would not be inconsistent 
with some downward trend throughout the 
year. 

Cost-of- Living Index Exceeds 1920 Peak 

Though its 51 per cent increase since 1939 

has been less than the 89 per cent rise over 



World War I, the cost-of-living index on March 
1 reached a record high of 150.8, just .2 points 
higher than the level attained in July, 1920. 
Though the total index reached a new high, 
two groups in the index which have advanced 
the most during the last few years, food and 
clothing, are still somewhat below their 1920 
level. Thus the current index for food is almost 
16 points below its 1920 peak and the clothing 
index is over 50 points lower than the level 
reached in 1920. On the other hand, the index 
of rents, even though it has advanced less than 
any other group since 1939, is now 17.4 points 
higher than it was in July, 1920. 

Net Farm Income at Record High 

Net income of Canadian farmers from farm- 
ing operations in 1947 reached a total of $1,260 
million, the highest figure on record and about 
9 per cent above 1946. In terms of the estimated 
number of farm operators this is equivalent 
to an average income of slightly over $1,900 per 
farmer. Farmers in the prairie provinces re- 
ceived most of the benefit from this rise; their 
net income was up over 18 per cent, whereas in 
Ontario and Quebec only small gains were 
shown. Much of this difference was due to the 
sharper rise in operating expenses in the two 
latter provinces, particularly for purchased 
feed and seed. 

An examination of the main sources of cash 
farm income over the past twenty years reveals 
a marked shift from grain crops to livestock and 
animal products (see Table 38). During the 
last three years livestock, dairy products, poul- 
try and eggs have accounted for over 52 per 
cent of total cash farm income, while for the 
years from 1926 to 1929 only 38 per cent of cash 
income came from these products. In contrast 
the proportion of cash farm income received 
from grains has declined from 49 per cent in 
the earlier period to 31 per cent in the last three 
years. The change in the importance of wheat 
has been especially marked. Whereas in the 
years from 1926 to 1929 cash income from wheat 
constituted 42 percent of the total, it was only 
21 per cent during the last three years, though 
this last percentage would be somewhat higher 
if surplus of the Canadian Wheat Board earned 
but not distributed during this period were 
included. Coarse grains have not shared wheat's 
declining importance and income from their 
sales has risen from about 7 to about 10 per 
cent of the total over the twenty-year period. 

Livestock Prices and Marketings 

Because of the sharp rise in the prices of feed 
grains, the hog-barley ratio moved sharply 
downward during 1947 and in December it 
reached 13.9, the lowest ratio and the most 
unfavourable for hog production since May, 
1937, (see Table 40). Since that time the rise

in hog prices and the decline in coarse grain 
prices has resulted in a substantial recovery, 
and for the week ended March 20 the ratio was 
21.1 higher than the annual average of any 
year since 1941. 

A survey of the number of hogs on farms at 
December 1 shows that the upward trend 
evident during the past year has been reversed 
and the farm population of hogs has fallen 
about one per cent since December, 1946. As 
had been true in recent surveys, Saskatchewan 
showed the sharpest decline, about 14 per cent. 
Additional evidence of declining production is 
provided by the size of the fall pig crop and by 
farmers' intentions for their spring pig crop. 
The number of pigs saved out of the fall litters 
was down about 9 per cent from a year earlier, 
with Saskatchewan once more snowing the 
largest decline — almost 30 per cent. Farmers' 
plans at December 1 indicate an even sharper 
reduction in the spring pig crop. Their estimate 
of the number of sows bred to farrow between 
December and May was down 33 per cent from 
a year earlier. In this case the sharpest drops 
were in Ontario and Quebec, 35 and 41.5 per 
cent respectively, a reflection of the shortage 
of feed in Eastern Canada. However the recent 
improvement in the price relationship affecting 
hog production may cause some alteration in 
these plans. 

Increased hog marketings since the start of 
the year reflect both last spring's large pig 
crop and some liquidation of farm stocks. 
Inspected slaughterings of hogs for the first 
quarter are up about 49 per cent over a year 
ago. The increase has been almost equally 
large in both Eastern and Western Canada. 
Inspected slaughterings of cattle are also up 
but by a smaller amount, about 21 per cent. 
In this case the largest increase, about 37 per 
cent, has been in Eastern Canada. The increase 
in slaughterings has been reflected in cold 
storage holdings of meat and at March 1 stocks 
were about 90 per cent higher that a year ear- 
lier. 

Canada's Supply of Fuel and Power 

In the first quarter of 1947 restrictions on 
the use of electric power in Ontario, a voluntary 
reduction in Canada's imports of petroleum 
products, a temporary shortage of natural gas, 
and a strike in Western coal mines have all 
combined to focus attention on Canada's fuel 
and power supply. According to estimates 
published in the Bank of Canada Statistical 
Summary slightly over half of the total of Ca- 
nada's major sources of energy in 1945 was 
supplied by coal, about 30 per cent by hydro- 
electric power, about 16 per cent by petroleum 
fuels and the remaining 3 per cent by natural 
gas. Of the total energy supply about 46 per 
cent came from imported fuels, almost the 
same proportion as in 1926. While Canada pro- 
duces all of her electric power supply, she is 
heavily dependent on imports for both coal and 



viii 



petroleum. Thus in 1947, over 90 per cent of 
our supply of crude petroleum and about two- 
thirds of our coal was imported. Though 
Canada has always imported most of her pe- 
troleum, our dependence on imported coal has 
been increasing, for ten years ago, back in 1937, 
only about one-half of our coal supply was 
imported. However, the growing importance 
of electric power in the total has prevented 
our overall dependence on imported power 
from increasing. 

A continued growth in the importance of 
electric power seems probable in view of the 
important construction projects currently un- 
der way in that field. Capital expenditure of 
central electric stations for 1948 have been 
forecast at $181.5 million, almost 43 per cent 
higher than in 1947. Output of central electric 
stations has shown a marked upward trend 
throughout the past three decades and the 
current level of production is almost four times 
as large as in 1926. 

Refined petroleum products showed increases 
in output, consumption and stocks during 
1947. Consumption of light and heavy fuel oil 
showed the most marked expansion, the former 
rising about 48 per cent and the latter about 
18 per cent. With a rising number of automo- 
biles available, consumption of motor gasoline 
moved up about 12 per cent. Notwithstanding 
the overall rise in fuel consumption of about 
20 per cent, year end stocks of refined petro- 
leum products at the refineries and in whole- 
sale channels were about 15 per cent higher 
than they had been a year earlier. 

Canadian production of coal, our major 
source of fuel and power, was down 1 1 per cent 
in 1947. Much of this decline was due to the 
strike in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick early 
in the year. Employment, has never recov- 
ered to its pre-strike level and in the last 
quarter of 1947 the average number employed 
in Canadian coal mines was about 6 per cent 
lower than for the same period of 1946. Despite 
this, however, total output for the same period 
was almost 10 per cent higher, evidence of a 
substantial rise in output per worker. 1947's 
loss in production was more than balanced by 
an increase in coal imports, which for the year 
rose by just over 3.7 million tons. 

Changes in Earnings and Prices 

Several statistical series are available for 
measuring relative changes in earnings and 
prices. Data on the average weekly earnings of 
salary and wage workers in eight leading in- 
dustries have been collected since June 1941. 
Monthly statistics on the average hourly earn- 
ings of wage workers paid on an hourly basis in 
manufacturing and a limited number of other 
industries are available back to December 1944. 
Finally, an annual index of wage rates prepared 
by the Department of Labour is available for 
the period from 1901 to 1946.

In using each of these series to measure the 
change in the worker's position, careful inter- 
pretation is required. Average weekly earnings 
may vary not only because of changes in wage 
rates but also as a result of changes in the 
length of the working week, in the amount of 
overtime worked and because of shifts in the 
composition of the working force between 
skilled and unskilled workers, between male 
and female workers and between people of long 
and short service. In addition there is no basis 
for distinguishing between the changes in 
earnings of wage earners and those of salaried 
workers. Average hourly earnings are a better 
measure of the change in wage rates, but they, 
too, are affected by overtime rates of pay and 
by shifts in the composition of the labour 
force. An index of wage rates should provide 
the best measure of changing rates but it is 
only available on an annual basis. Moreover, 
none of these statistical series include the im- 
provements in the worker's position which are 
granted in the form of vacations with pay, or 
employer's contributions to pension funds, 
factors of some importance during the past 
year or two. 

Since the end of the war the cost-of-living 
index has risen about 25 per cent, somewhat 
more than the 20 per cent rise in average weekly 
earnings. During the same period there has 
been decline of about 3 per cent in the length 
of the working week. The major part of our 
post-war price rise has been concentrated in 
the past year and the rapid upsurge in prices 
during this period has carried the cost-of- 
living index up 17 per cent, substantially more 
than the 10 per cent rise in weekly earnings 
during this same period. Average hourly earn- 
ings in manufacturing industries also lagged 
behind the rise in prices during the past year. 
However, over the longer period since the end 
of the war, they have just kept pace with the 
cost-of-living index, both having risen 25 per 
cent. Of course, some of this price rise has 
been due to the removal of subsidies and this 
has been at least partially offset by a reduction 
in taxes. 

Building Materials in Better Supply 

A considerable improvement was effected in 
the supply of building materials during 1947, 
due both to more ample production and the 
greater volume of imports. In the case of a 
number of products, such as concrete bricks 
and building blocks, rock wool batts, bath 
tubs, and non-metallic sheathed cable, produc- 
tion increased by 40 per cent or more. Other 
major increases were shown by nails (31 per 
cent), cast iron soil pipe and fittings (33 per 
cent), gypsum lath (29 per cent) and vitrified 
sewer pipe (29 per cent). Two important ma- 
terials, bricks and cement, showed smaller 
increases of about 9 and 13 per cent respectively. 
Structural steel was also in much better supply 
and domestic shipments to the building con- 



struction industry increased by almost 45 per 
cent. Imports of the type of steel used primari- 
ly for construction purposes showed an even 
sharper rise, about 55 per cent over 1946. Only 
for lumber was the domestic supply appreciably 
smaller. Though lumber production was about 
8 per cent higher than in 1946, exports 
increased by almost 32 per cent, thus causing 
about a 10 per cent reduction in the domes- 
tic supply. A smoother flow of materials 
should follow this improvement in supply and 
this should make possible some reduction in 
building costs which will not be reflected by 
building material prices or wage data. 

Forecast Increases 

in Capital Expenditure for 1948 

A forecast of the capital expenditure on ma- 
chinery and new construction which business 
firms, institutions, governments and indivi- 
duals expect to make during 1948 was tabled in 
Parliament recently. An investment program 
of $2.8 billion, about 17 per cent larger than 
the amount spent in 1947 and over four times 
the average annual expenditure for the period 
1935 to 1939, is indicated by this report. The 
increase over last year is made up of 21 per cent 
rise for construction and a 12 percent increase 
for machinery and equipment. However, if 
allowance is made for the higher prices now 
prevailing the construction program would in- 
volve only a very moderate increase in physical 
volume, perhaps 5 per cent, while the physical 
requirements for machinery and equipment 
are probably about the same as in 1947. The 
largest increase was shown by schools, churches 
and hospitals, and expenditures on this group 
are expected to rise by about 81 per cent over 
1947. A substantial rise in expenditure, about 
28 per cent, is also forecast for the utility group, 
which includes electric power, telephones, and 
railways. On the other hand manufacturing 
shows only an 8 per cent increase, but invest- 
ment expenditure in this industry had already 
reached an unusually high level and, because 
of war-time plant additions, their replacement 
needs may have been smaller than elsewhere. 
The increased importance of institutions and 
public utilities in the investment picture may 
reduce the probability of any sharp cutbacks 
in investment expenditures during the coming 
year. 

Some measure of the extent of the capital 
expenditure program that has been under way 
in the manufacturing industry can be gained 
by comparing it with the total pre-war value 
of capital reported. For the period from 1945 
to 1948, the total actual and forecast expendi- 
tures of manufacturing firms amounts to over 
$1.5 billion, or almost 70 per cent of the total 
value of land, buildings and equipment report- 
ed by manufacturing firms in 1939. Even if 
allowance is made for a substantial rise in price, 
it is apparent that our manufacturing plant is 
being increased at an unusually rapid rate.
